"The Gospel Truth" is a song from the 1997 Disney animated film "Hercules". The song serves as the opening number of the movie and sets up the story of the titular hero. The song is divided into three parts, with "The Gospel Truth I" being the first part.


The song is performed by the five Muses, who act as a Greek chorus and narrate the story of Hercules. "The Gospel Truth I" is an upbeat and energetic song that introduces the main themes and characters of the film, and features a gospel choir and a fusion of different musical styles such as R&B, soul, and gospel.


The song's lyrics reference Greek mythology and the characters of Hercules, Zeus, and Hades, and set up the story of how Hercules was stripped of his godly powers and raised as a mortal. The song also introduces the idea of the hero's journey and the concept of destiny.


"The Gospel Truth" has been praised for its catchy and upbeat music, as well as its unique and memorable use of gospel and R&B elements in a Disney musical. The song was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist David Zippel, who also collaborated on other Disney musicals such as "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin".
